The first Creed film was a bit of a revelation. How do you keep a franchise that really didn’t go away but had lost steam, going in a fun and refreshing way. Enter Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan. They did a fantastic job setting up the new world that Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) is still in and setting the stage for future films. One such film, is coming out this November in Creed II.
Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.
Creed II hits theaters on Nov. 21, 2018
